Democracy Consists Of Bottomless Politicians
We are demonocratic, and anti-social barbarians
“Democracy is a government of the fools, for the fools, by the fools.” George Bernard Shaw. I disagree with Shaw- “Democracy is a government of the politics, for the politics, by the public not the people.” By me. You will definitely enjoy what John Adams says, “Democracy… while it lasts is more bloody than either aristocracy or monarchy. Remember, democracy never lasts long. It soon wastes, exhausts, and murders itself. There is never a democracy that did not commit suicide.”
Thousands of students agitating against ‘the bill to ban students’ union elections in the universities stormed all the roads leading to Town Hall like swarming bees threatened their survival. The prime minister would arrive there to inaugurate a national highway that had seen two more prime ministers while being constructed.
The police heavily barricaded all entry points and almost fortified the vicinity of the arrival venue. It was tough for the public “imprisoned without committing a crime” but only for living in the “area of PM’s” terrible visit. The city cops who failed to control “the students’ mob” were revengefully searching the vehicles of local residents as if they were providing illegal shelter to the protesting students. Some cops are kids born out of wedlock of many-sided politicians who are tigers for law- abiding citizens but gentle deer for lawbreakers in almost every nation. Hired workers of opposition parties mixed with the students like city concubines in the guise of girlfriends.
The Administration Petrified And Farting
The students braving the powerful water canons and intermittent shelling of tear gas continued like the soldiers of a “gorilla” army in exile to outshine the over-confident police on all fronts in the city. At one point in time, the administration stood impotently petrified. And it started farting incessantly after realizing their inability to stop the students without using bullets. Some pot-bellied cops developed the symptoms of hydrated diarrhea on account of unusual leg work.
No doubt, the government’s action plan might be amazingly upside down if there would have been enough time to delete the data from the vulnerable public memory. In the wake of the parliamentary general election in the country within a few months, the ruling party could never drink and digest the risk of silencing the students using violent means. Because it was sure to impregnate the situation with anti-rule decaplet(a group of ten babies).
And the public would easily understand the callousness of the ruling government with a lasting impression till the voting day on their ever oblivious psyche. Thus the government was defensive to the level of ass up and head down and ready to oblige all homo…, hetero…or any type with all holes open. And some special neutralizing cum tranquilizing politicians pressed into service to negotiate the swelling situation.
A Colored Wolf On The Throne Of A Lion King
A few months before, when the bill was tabled and passed, the ruling party could not smell damaging consequences due to over intoxication of power. As a part of their self-declared liability, several political parties breathlessly opposed all initiatives of the ruling government, right or wrong, to remain alive in media. The prime minister bluntly refused to review the bill alleging opposition parties for being hostile to youth and misusing students’ power to sketch their nefarious designs. He was determined like a colored wolf on the throne of a lion king to stop politicizing university campuses. He regretted that the campus politics had spoiled the thousands of talented students’ academic environment and future prospects.
International media lavishly highlighted the PM’s undemocratic standpoint of purging university campuses from contagious politics. The media got interested in the issue under the cover motive of beating one another to build up an image of the fourth pillar of marketable democracy. One popular media channel, “twitched PM”, reminding him that he started his political career as the president of the Students’ Union.
The PM had an extraordinary power of adaptability in changing situations and a quality of licking no less than a dog. He could transform himself into multiple personalities of different ideals and ideologies with commendable ease that had helped him ascend to the country’s highest office. He was a character- smith and could mold his habits as and when required.
Not Enough Time For The Public To Forget
The Home Minister instantly discussed the pluses and minuses of the matter with the prime minister and apprised him of the students’ agitation . And he discussed its stinky consequences as it being only two months before the general election in the country. The public would not get enough time to forget it.
Sensing the volatile situation’s sensitivity, the prime minister decided to apply mathematics when two minuses make a plus and “transformed himself into a leader” who firmly believed that the Students’ Unions were the first lesson of democracy for the youth. His technique of replacing standpoints as the situation demanded worked out well. He met the protesting students’ delegation with an open heart and a clever design at his visit.
Grabbing Power By Hook Or Crook, By Fair Or Foul, By Truth Or False
The decision of the prime minister to meet the students was not easily digestible. Because he had worn a mask of a straightforward and uncompromising leadership during his outgoing term of five years as a part of cleverly designed strategy. The opposition parties were fallen prostrate. They were utterly disappointed for losing a powerful electoral stunt against the prime minister.
In our democracies, the word ‘people’ is a ‘mask.’ The power resides behind the mask. That is why the conspiring politicians believe in grabbing power by hook or by crook, by fair or foul, by truth or by false; none of these matters. If anything matters, it is one and only “power.” The idealism of any genre in today’s politics is a high- quality N-95 mask over a power- hungry crocodile.
The Prime Minister At The Best Of His Lip Service
There was unspeakable pleasure among the students to receive the PM’s invitation for negotiation as they had reached the first milestone of their nubile political career. They withdrew their protest march. At the best of his lip service, the prime minister impressed the students and promised them to fulfill their demands. Soon after, the prime minister addressed the media that his party would reconsider the bill before declaring elections.
None could deny even PM’s political opponents that he was a genius role- player. How soon he entered his new role with no stain of the previous one! Some university Vice-Chancellors with no political patronage criticized the prime minister to be hypocritical in his rhetoric. Another Vice-Chancellor of a prestigious University said to have been recommended for the Governor of some state(greedy sources leaked)vehemently praised the democratic values of the prime minister. The prime minister reaffirmed that students’ unions were the first step of the democratic ladder.
